Amazon Black Friday Deal: Score 50% Off New Release Movies


‘Tis the season for some major shopping deals, and that includes ones that will entertain you from home. Just ask Amazon Prime Video.

Starting on Black Friday, Prime Video subscribers can score the ultimate deal: 50% off rent or buy new release movies on the streaming platform. The discount is good through 12/5, which means there’s plenty of time to park yourself on the couch and binge some stellar movies with your family.

“Good Boys,” the comedy that follows three young boys through their hilarious navigations of coming-of-age, can be rented for as little as $3. The deal is such a steal that Amazon pretty much buried it in its press release of its Black Friday deals.

If you’re in the mood for something more serious to watch, Quentin Tarantino’s most recent film “Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood” is part of the Black Friday deal and can be bought for only $10. This star-studded narrative is Tarantino’s reimagination of Hollywood in 1969; audience viewers can watch along as actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) navigate the endtail of Hollywood’s golden age–and have their lives threatened by Manson’s cult in the process.

A more family-friendly film that’s included in the Black Friday Prime Video sale is “Dora and the Lost City of Gold.” This real-life adaptation of the popular kid’s cartoon “Dora the Explorer” follows Dora on her wild adventure to find her parents who were lost in the City of Gold. This film is action-packed and boasts a four-out-of-five star rating on Prime Video. With the sale, you can rent it for $3 or buy it for $7.50

Finally, those looking for a film to help them get into the holiday spirit can rent “A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish” to fill their desire. This film follows the original storyline of “A Cinderella Story” but brings a holiday twist to it; one reviewer even claims it’s almost as good as the version with Hilary Duff. This new classic has a four-out-of-five star rating on Prime Video. With the sale, you can rent it for $2.50 or buy it for $5.

If you’re not a Prime member and those titles aren’t enticing enough, this might convince you to finally sign up: On November 29, The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show will premier globally through the streaming platform. The holiday special includes guests Lana del Rey, Dan Levy, the Radio City Rockettes and more. It’s safe to say the special programming is Amazon giving major cable providers a run for their holiday-programming money.

Prime Video can be accessed for free with an Amazon Prime membership ($119 per year) or through a $8.99 monthly subscription.
